Kṛtakṛtya (कृतकृत्य) is a title given to the Bhikṣus that accompanied the Buddha when he went to Gṛdhrakūṭaparvata at Rājagṛha according to Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter VI). Accordingly, “They were accomplished (so tso = kṛtya) and complete (yi pan = kṛta)”. What is meant by kṛtya and what is meant by kṛta? Answer.—They are kṛtya because they have obtained the good dharmas (kuśaladharma) such as faith (śraddhā), discipline (śīla), equanimity (upekṣā), concentration (samādhi), etc. They are kṛta because they have obtained the good dharmas, such as wisdom (prajñā), energy (vīrya), the deliverances (vimokṣa), etc. Having these two types of good dharmas in full, they are called Kṛtakṛtya.
